Packer & Jones GirlsI’ve been hanging out over in this side of the family with my research for the last few weeks.

This is my 2nd Great Aunt Grace Packer and, I believe, her two oldest nieces Alexia and Edith Jones. There’s only a five or six year  gap in age between Grace and Lexie. This was probably taken around 1914 just before or after her next niece, Doris Jones,was born. The Jones girls were the daughters of Pearl (Packer) and Raymond Jones.

Everyone looks thrilled in this shot!

Happy hunting,


Since I briefly mentioned her… This is the family of my 2nd Great Aunt, Pearl Elizabeth Packer Jones, my Great-Grandmother Cora’s older sister. Pictured are Pearl, her  first husband Raymond E. Jones and their daughters Alexia, Doris (on Raymond’s lap) and Edith. The photo is likely taken in Grand Rapids, MI around 1915 (based on Doris’s age). Raymond died in 1937 and for a time Cora and her children moved in with them. Eventually, Pearl married Archie McComb and the couple removed to Quebec. Pearl returned to Grand Rapids late in life and died there in 1980.
